In these classes we will gather together and will discover the world of Ukrainian pysanky, symbols, techniques, and ornaments. No previous experience is required to participate in the club. I will prepare for you all the necessary materials (“kistka”, beeswax, candle, color dyes, clean and dry blown-out eggs) to sketch on eggshells. Step by step, I will go with you through all the essential points of the pysanky making process sequence. In the end, you will be able to take home Pysanka created by you. There will be a different theme for each session. Spring: sun, plants, animals. April theme – plants on pysanky (plant symbols). May theme – animals on pysanky (animal symbols). Summer: a wealth of geometric symbols. June theme – seeds, rakes, combs, spirals. July theme – triangles, diamonds, squares, ladders, nets. August theme – windmills, crosses, ram’s horns.
